Honeypots present networked computer systems with known security flaws to attackers and can serve to collect the executable code (malware) aiming to exploit the vulnerability. We describe and evaluate the proof-of-concept NetStage Architecture for a high-speed honeypot realized in reconfigurable logic. Dedicated hardware accelerators for the different(More)
Keywords: Academic self-concept Academic anxiety Short scale Single-item measure Psychological assessment a b s t r a c t Because testing time in educational research is typically scarce, the use of long scales to assess motivational affective constructs can be problematic. The goal of the present study was to scrutinize the psychometric properties of short(More)
The Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST) assesses executive and frontal lobe function and can be administered manually or by computer. Despite the widespread application of the 2 versions, the psychometric equivalence of their scores has rarely been evaluated and only a limited set of criteria has been considered. The present experimental study (N = 100(More)
Early number competence, grounded in number-specific and domain-general cognitive abilities, is theorized to lay the foundation for later math achievement. Few longitudinal studies have tested a comprehensive model for early math development. Using structural equation modeling and mediation analyses, the present work examined the influence of(More)
Computer-based problem solving scenarios or " microworlds " are contemporary assessment instruments frequently used to assess students' complex problem solving behavior – a key aspect of today's educational curricula and assessment frameworks. Surprisingly, almost nothing is known about their (1) acceptance or (2) psychometric characteristics in student(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether childhood general intelligence, fluid intelligence (Gf), and crystallized intelligence (Gc) predict various health outcomes in middle adulthood. METHOD This prospective longitudinal study followed a nationally representative sample of 717 Luxembourgers. Intelligence and socioeconomic status (SES) were measured at age 12;(More)
BACKGROUND Girls are considerably less interested in scientific subjects than boys. One reason may be that scientific subjects are considered to be genuinely masculine. Thus, being interested in science may threaten the self-perception of girls as well as the femininity of their self-image. AIMS If scientific topics that are considered to be(More)
Drawing on a 2-wave longitudinal sample spanning 40 years from childhood (age 12) to middle adulthood (age 52), the present study was designed to examine how student characteristics and behaviors in late childhood (assessed in Wave 1 in 1968) predict career success in adulthood (assessed in Wave 2 in 2008). We examined the influence of parental(More)
